weekly Solo exhibition Afra Eisma

Solo exhibition Afra Eisma


Afra Eisma (1993) creates intimate worlds bursting with colour and energy. Her work consists of tufted carpets, ceramics, drawings, paintings and textiles that lead to radiant tactile installations in which connection and generosity are central. Starting 27 March, 2021, the Fries Museum will present its first solo museum exhibition.

For this exhibition, Eisma transforms the rooms into immersive installations. For each space she highlights an emotion that connects them to the stomach, heart and mouth. Guides, sometimes in the form of animals, lead the visitor from one room to another. The installations are a convergence of life and art, she literally weaves life experiences into her work. With the exhibition she reflects on her own vulnerability.
